Now that you are peeking into my fridge, you can see what I keep in there. Some things are kind of weird. Like on the top left, you can see a jar with almonds and water in it. I make my own almond milk. I used the last of my milk this morning so I soak the almonds for a day before I make more. I make my own for a couple of reasons. The first is because I walk and bike to shop. Carrying almonds home is easier, especially if I'm walking. Carrying liquids home can be painful on the shoulders. The other is that you can't find plain almond milk. Mine is nothing but almonds and water, but the commercial varieties insist on putting all sorts of weird things in it. On the top right shelf and all the way to the back you will see my seed collection in an air tight container. Or at least most of my seed collection. Yes I waste fridge space to store my seeds. If I'm desperate for space I can always take them out, but my seeds are precious. To the left way behind the tea is a small batch of ginger wine. Norma taught me to preserve my ginger that way. And I love the sake flavored with ginger for cooking too.
And my favorite thing in the fridge is the lower box of eggs. The other boxes of eggs are nice enough for store bought eggs (the farmers markets don't start for another week around here - June 11th for the Arlington one). But those are lovely pastured eggs from one of my townhouse mates' friends. She owns a farm in New Hampshire. Her eggs are better than any I've found at the farmers market. Even if I had my own chickens they wouldn't be as good as I just don't have the land for them to eat that many natural things. Yum. My husband won't be home for dinner on Wednesday and I'm contemplating making Dave's wife's spinach pie for the first time, but I'll need to get to the store for cottage cheese. I hope it happens.
